Meet Your Hosts

Greg Peterson

Greg Peterson

Founder,
Urban Farm Nursery & Urban Farm U

Farmer Greg has been digging his toes into the earth, listening to the plants, and experimenting with progressive permaculture techniques in his yard for over 40 years. His 1/3-acre home in Phoenix, AZ has been converted into an entirely edible landscape which he periodically opens to the community for tours and classes, and his Fruit Tree Program has resulted in the planting of over 10,000 fruit trees. Greg's passion is seeing others discover that they can grow food successfully, and his mission is to show that they too can realize the power, joy and deliciousness of urban farming!

Janis Norton

General Manager,
Urban Farm Nursery

Janis is the glue that holds the Nursery together, and loves setting up the systems that help our Fruit Tree Program run successfully. However, as a scientist with a love of engineering, she was truly interested in the how's and why's of healthy soil, the ecology in the soil, and the mechanics of how successful plants get established in the soil. Between her studies, her work with Urban Farm, and taking Master Gardener courses - she was hooked. Now she wants to help others understand the beauty of how planting trees can work for them.
